Chapter 6 - The Letter
After that, Kyles transferred to another department, and I was able to see him smile, saying that his treatment had improved. I felt good that it worked out. Right, I tried so hard so that he could grow, as if he was my plant. But the result…
“Unlike you, she understands my feelings. I don’t care if you talk badly of me, but just shut your cheap mouth about her!” said Kyles.
I hid what I had done for you because you might feel I had done too much. But it all came to be a useless effort. “Alright, I understand your dear love for her. I will disappear from your sight now, so try what you can with a woman who has a fiancé. Oh, actually you can’t. You’re not in that league. I’m pretty sure her fiancé was the Crown Prince.”
Kyles became cold as he looked at me. But my heart had become so dull that I couldn’t feel any pain from his glare. “Were you this cold? I’m scared of you. I find it so scary that you were once my fiancée.”
At last, he denied me as his fiancée. I made a bitter smile. Kyles, do you remember? You said you liked my bold character, like when I saved you from being bullied by the other kids. Your innocent look warmed my heart.
You also envied how proudly I express myself. I thanked you for that, and I loved you like a flower that I raised, so I did my best to help you. Although it wasn’t burning love, I thought spending my life with a good man like you was going to be great. So, I tried my best. It’s not me who changed but you. I was always like this, and the traits of mine that you once liked are now scary and vile to you.
“Yeah. I am what you see. I always have been, so let’s stop it here. I am sick and tired of this and just…” I’m sure you don’t see me as a knight who proudly saves you or a saint who sacrificed for you anymore. You only see me as an evil witch who curses and hurts your precious woman. “End it here. Let’s not see each other again. Even if we come across each other, let’s pretend we don’t know each other. You and I aren’t even friends. We’re strangers. I dumped you.”
I glared back at Kyles, who was glaring at me, smirked, and began to walk away. My legs felt like they would fail me, but I did my best to walk proudly. I didn’t want to falter in front of him.
It may be wrong to say that I dumped you because you actually never had me in the first place. But I still wanted to walk away from you in that proud state that you used to say you like me this way. That’s why I’m trying my best to hold back my tears.
Even if in his current state, he sees me as an evil witch… I’m pretty sure he does. But I walked proudly towards the party hall for Kyles that I used to love. ‘Yeah. I should tie the knots perfectly on my way out.’
I was standing proudly dressed beautifully with everyone’s attention on me in the party room. Elise von Schuteiner, the culprit behind the destruction of the long-term relationship between me and my fiancé Kyles, and the one who bullied me with hatred for no reason was there glaring at me with the other ladies and men.
I ignored their glares as I began walking toward her. Then a tall young man stood in front of me, blocking my way with a look of warning in his eyes, “You should return to your home while you can, Lady Harrant.”
Should I consider it an honor? The second son of the Duke’s family, Hillain von Harsen, who I would not even dare to think to talk to, was glaring at me like this. I found this situation so laughable that I smiled and spoke back to him.
“Move aside, Sir Hillain. It is rude for a knight to stand in the way of a lady.”
My words did not make him a budget. ‘He sure is a loyal dog.’ I glanced over the beautiful woman behind this sturdy wall.
‘Look at her! She has all these loyal dogs doing her biddings!’ It was astonishing. I am sure Kyles and other dumb and loyal dog like men are all playing in her hands. But I am not going to buzz off easily like that.
I walked up to Hillain and glared, “Let me speak again, Sir Hillain. Know your place and move aside. I have no intention of harming your lady. I am just here to have a word with her.”
I glared at him, and his pretty face began to blush up as if he felt disrespected by a fallen noble like me. “Y-you! How dare-” said Hillain before he was interrupted.
“Sir Hillain. Can you let me speak to her, please?”
‘And the boss appears.’ As their princess came close, they formed a circle around me and her and turned their backs toward us. Thanks to them, there was a barrier of humans around me. Well, at least I can talk with her without worrying about others watching us. What convenient dogs.
“I am so sorry I hurt your feelings. It’s all my fault,” said Elise.
I almost scoffed. Elise was faking a tearful voice with a smirk on her face. How amusing. Are you showing your true intent right when your dogs aren’t watching you? I’m not a fool like Kyles to play along with your scheme. I avoided them because I found them despicable, not because I was scared.
